Photo Information for My Differin


Recommended Comments

Has anyone tried this? Does it work like a BP!?

I don't really know. My skin gets dry from it (it happened with atralin also) so I haven't had a chance to use it consistently.

BP, as in benzoyl peroxide? It's a completely different class of medications. BP you can get over the counter. Retinoids (like Atralin and Differin) work by increasing the rate of cell turnover. It takes a while to get results (with good results in 3-4 months, best results at a year) but topical retinoids are the holy grail for acne, after accutane (which is also a retinoid, but taken in oral form for severe or resistant cases).
